MSB request for a better overview of PPE needs and supply

MSB’s mission includes ensuring that the life and health of the population are protected and that society continues to function. For that reason we have today made an official request to the government in the interest of preparing the country for a continuing pandemic in the autumn.

”The request concerns personal protective equipment, PPE, for key services other than medical care and nursing,” says Anneli Bergholm Söder, head of MSB’s operational department.

One government agency to coordinate PPE 

The PPE needs of medical care and nursing are now comprehensively monitored, but not those of other key services. Smaller stakeholders may additionally have difficulties obtaining PPE as suppliers prioritise bigger customers. MSB has requested that the government make one agency the coordinator of PPE purchases for all key services.
